"I know nothing about the election, you should ask the contesting parties," Dalmiya told newsmen as he came out of a meeting of the Board's marketing committee.
On repeated queries by newspersons he said, "I only know that I am retiring tomorrow".
Asked how he felt about his tenure as the president of the Board, he simply said, "happy and satisfied".
Dalmiya has already been appointed as the patron-in-chief of the Board at a special general meeting of the Board at Chennai on September 12. He would be taking over his new post at the end of his tenure as president on Wednesday.
